If you want I can go into all the technical details, why this is that
way. It is not pretty, but there is no easy solution - we have to
somehow deal with the fact, that a selection is not a vector-based shape
and stroking has to have something to follow.
Another workaround is to convert the selection into a path and then
stroke the path, this should also give better (but not perfect) results.
